Happy Monday! I set my alarm for 6 for an early run but it was still super dark when I set out. Since my only speed route (read: flat) is on a dark trail I decided to switch it to tomorrow for safety reasons (even though I do run faster when I’m scared!).
Thyroid update: My T-3 levels are better, but I stopped taking the Cytomel because it was making me crash an hour after I would take it. My doctor is switching me to a compound version. Luckily, I can get it right next door to her office.
The pharmacist there was AMAZING. She asked me tons of questions about why I was on this, my levels, habits, other meds. And then she suggested taking a B-complex and Ashwaganda. We ended up talking for over a half an hour and she answered tons of questions about supplements for endurance athletes too!!! It was the best.
From my doc’s I headed to my mom’s (I was in the area since I’ve kept my doctor). As soon as I walked in I raided her kitchen for some fruit. She swore I had to try this new Nature Valley Protein bar. It’s good, but a little high in calories for something that still just seems like a granola bar.
I was super inspired by all the athletes and highlight clips I saw at the LA Live Event on Saturday (I’m even considering trying a tri!). So I want to pass along some of that motivation to you with this Refuel Training video with Dara Torres.
Question: What’s your motivation today?
